It was Phantom of the Opera time at Manhattan's Cipriani when El Museo del Barrio held their annual ball. Manhattan society, dressed to "the tens" in couture ball gowns and tuxedoes, turned out to support El Museo's drive to raise money for their extensive new renovation. Many of the ball-goers wore masks designed by some of New York's premiere designers. These masks had been purchased at an earlier auction to benefit El Museo held at Carolina Herrera's boutique.

The "Social Spaniards" were out in full force as were fashion designers like Carolina Herrera (the honorary chair of the ball), Zang Toi, Gustavo Arrango and Narcisco Rodriguez. Also present were the Gala Chairmen Yaz and Valentin Hernández (with their charming son Valentin) and Ruben and Isabel Toledo (the Toledos!) and the Junior Committee Chairmen: Jana Pasquel; Samantha Thompson; and Mayra Hernández Gonzalez. Honorees at the ball were: Roberto and Claudia
Hernández; Altria Group, Inc.; and the Reed Foundation
.

It was a beautiful mysterious night at one of Manhattan's most gorgeous establishments, the magical Cipriani.
